COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our most popular brewmaster special brought back by overwhelming requests. A classic British nut brown ale. Full bodied, complex and interesting yet mild in flavor. Our interpretation of this style has distinctive hop aroma and flavor. (O.G.-1.052, IBUs 23)

Bork (262) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Light and watery brew with less aroma and flavor than desired from the style. Not bad by any means, just not much of anything.

ttutony (677) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Medium brown with an off-white head. Really nice toast, nutty, and caramel aromas. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Nice malty flavor profile that mirrors the aromas. Well done.

joelfaber (20) - Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head of foam that disappeared quickly. Light aroma of roasted nuts. Tastes of nuts and malt. Light body. Not enough body for such a dark ale.

Bottle sample at RBWG. Pours brown in color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had roasted malt, nuts, a little cocoa and some earthy bitterness. A bit better than their APA.

Look: pours a dark brown. Dark red color when held to the light. White head that turns into thick lacing. Smell: ripe dark fruit smell. Cherries and raisins. Strong malt Taste: strong cherries. Maybe a red apple Feel: not to thick but a good beer. Nice carbonation. Smooth a lifter taste. Overall: not a bad beer. Sweet on the nose and tongue.

This one poyured a lighter brown color with an offw htiehead. Aroma was of toast, caramel and light nut character. Flavor was similar, fairly bland caramel malt and some toast. Bland but not offensive.
